Both supporters and critics immediately trashed the strange, robot-like delivery and same-old, same-old rhetoric spewed by two of the biggest hypocrite career politicians in congress.
The response was quickly ripped apart online, as tons of people mocked the way they spoke while standing close together behind a small podium wearing scowls.
Their faces look like wax figures and many peole expected them to start speaking in a robotic voice simulation.
Many people think that’s a generous take on the strange, plastic-faced politicians.
“We trusted you with Dad’s car because we thought you could be responsible with it, but we see now you’re not ready,” Vulture writer Kathryn VanArendonk joked.
“Heavy Twin Peaks vibes,” added Twitter user Michael Dolan.
Others compared the Senate Minority Leader and Speaker of the House to the pitchfork-holding farmer couple.
“American Gothic anyone…” wrote Twitter user Seth Johnson, who included a screenshot of Grant Wood’s work of art.
“Not sure I’d have picked this American Gothic staging for Chuck and Nancy,” added Tom Nichols, a U.S. Naval War College professor.
Others couldn’t help but notice the resemblance to the ghost twins from The Shining.

You want to talk about lies? Pelosi and Schumer are talking about securing the border when they have NO INTEREST in securing the border. They're not against the wall because it won't work. They're against it because it WILL work. Really simple

If the goal was to look super uncomfortable and weird then I think Pelosi and Schumer have nailed it.

Yikes. I like Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi but they gotta work on the whole “not looking like villains from the next bond movie” thing next time. pic.twitter.com/Uen5rgZLH9

Watching the rebuttal almost seems surreal… as if viewers are waiting for the pair to shed their ‘masks’ and reveal themselves as alien invaders from a bad science fiction movie. It looks like they’re wearing the same eye-shadow color, one user quipped.
Most agree that the response was a joke. There is no doubt that border security is at a crisis, and the fact that democrats refuse to negotiate with the president to bring the government back online is appalling.
Likewise, the tired repetition of President Trump’s so-called ‘lies’ by the pair is beginning to pale. Watch a hilarious commentary on the weirdo freak show below.
